CALHOUN COUNTY'S OWN HARVEY GRANTHAM has been honored with the prestigious Jefferson Award in
recognition of countless hours of volunteer work in our community. He is shown here with his wife, Maebelle. The
Granthams will celebrate their 52nd wedding anniversary in two weeks.
RECOGNMfON



Grantham honored




with Jefferson Award


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
From Harvey Grantham's front porch off
Blackbottom Road, the waters of the Chipola River
appear crystal clear and unspoiled. A short stroll from
his rocking chair takes him to a dock where many a
lazy afternoon could be spent reeling in the catch of
the day or basking in the sun as the grandchildren
enjoy a swim.
Although he enjoys the view, Grantham rarely has
the time. Instead of indulging in the simple pleasures
that often come with retirement, he can typically be
found doing what he's always done: a labor of love.
Just two weeks ago, he was recognized by WMBB
News 13 with a prestigious Jefferson Award in honor
of his dedicated service to the community.
For someone with such a sweet, giving spirit, life
'hasn't always been easy. "My daddy died when I was
three years old and my mother died when I was nine,"
Grantham recalls, pointing out that he and his five
siblings were all alone. "They were going to split us
kids up. but the late Judge Big Jim Godwin's daddy,
who was my uncle, said, 'No, they're my family,' and
he took us in. We made our own living there...we even
planted rice out there and butchered our own hogs.
People back then were raised a lot different than they
are now."
When he was 18, Harvey met the love of his life,
Maebelle.' and they exchanged vows within three
months. Two weeks from now, they'll celebrate 52
years of marriage. "We have five kids, 14 grandkids,
and five great grands, with two more on the way," says
Maebelle. "We're very much blessed."
Over the years, Harvey worked at C.C. Corbin
Hardware in Blountston n. then served as the Calhoun
County School System's maintenance supervisor until
his retirement. However, it was what he did on his own
time that earned him the Jefferson Award. For four
decades, he served as a volunteer firefighter with the
Blountstown Fire Department, 30 years of which were
as fire chief. "When I started, they paid us $3 per fire,"
Grantham says with a grin. "If I was up in church
singing and got a call, I had to go in my dress
clothes."
Although he had a full time job and a large family
at home, Grantham says he was more than willing to
do his part, no matter the personal sacrifice. "When
you see somebody with a fire in their home, they're
losing things like pictures they can't get back," he
remarks. "We'd practice as hard as we could to get
their fast and be prepared when we got there."
His wife, Maebelle, laughs at the thought of how
fast he took off upon receiving a fire call. "If I could put
together a video of Harvey getting dressed for a fire,
Swe'd probably win the biggiel Harvey went just as hard


to a fire that paid nothing as if it had paid a bunch."
About seven years after retiring, Grantham became
passionate about another need in the community:
helping the homebound with mobility issues.
Longtime friend Halley Frye, another former Jefferson
Award winner, founded the Grumpy Old Men's Club.
The organization is composed of retirees and other
volunteers who give of their time to construct wheel-
chair ramps for the needy. In just a few short years
they've constructed over 250.
"Halley asked me one time to help them and, ever
since then, I've been involved," says Grantham. "We
work at a shop behind Halley's house cutting the
materials and, when we have everything ready, we go
to the site and meet the other volunteers to put up the
ramp."
Grantham is certain that his love for helping the
less fortunate has come from his relationship with
God. "We started going to Blountstown Pentecostal
Holiness Church 45 years ago and raised our children
there," he notes. "When you have the Lord in your
heart, He gives you a desire to help other people. That
love comes from the spirit of the Lord."
Among those who nominated Grantham for the
Jefferson Award was one of his fellow church mem-
bers, Elma Stewart. "My children all live away now
and they feel comfortable about me being alone
because they know Harvey will come to my rescue if I
need him," says Stewart. "They know he looks after
me."
SHarvey's wife, Maebelle, describes a husband who
has been her true partner in life. "I'm on the board of
Sr. Citizens and if I'm there working on a project, he's
there helping," she says. "If I'm working on eggs [for
the annual Easter project at church], he's delivering."
Harvey and Maebelle have volunteered together on
several occasions and have drawn many laughs on
stage at the annual Sr. Citizens Hee Haw production.
Always willing to lend a voice to a good cause, Harvey
took to the stage Saturday night after a special
request for him to sing during a benefit concert for
another local volunteer firefighter, Bobby Clark. Never
one to disappoint, Harvey belted out an impromptu
performance of "The Burglar Man" which brought
smiles across the grounds of the Pioneer Settlement.
Early the next morning, he was on stage with the
praise and worship team, singing for his church as
he's done for decades.
The Jefferson Award was founded over 25 years ago
in Washington, DC, by the American Institute for
Public Service. The award is given to those who serve,
help and heal across America. One of its major goals
is to reach into communities across the country to
reward individuals who might otherwise go unnoticed.
Congratulations to Harvey Grantham, a man who
epitomizes the spirit of selfless service. )

Cimmrino


pleads no


contest in


fraud case
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Todd Cimmino, the for-
mer owner of a powerboat
manufacturing business
based in Blountstown, will
avoid a trial on fraud
charges after pleading no
contest Thursday.
Cimmino was set to go on
trial Tuesday after being
accused of conducting an
"organized scheme to
defraud." He was arrested
back in March 2004 for
allegedly accepting close to
$27,000 from a customer to
restore a boat, then misrep-
resenting work done on the
vessel.
Cimmino's company,
Hawk Power, was located in
the Mowrey Industrial Park
and catered to clients from
around the globe, specializ-
ing in performance boats,
engines, and parts. His
arrest stemmed from deal-
ings with a customer from
Alamogordo, New Mexico. A
grand theft charge filed in
March 2003 was later dis-
missed.
Sentencing has been set
for May 11.

Letter to the Editor:
I have the sad news to
report that use of the "Indian
Office" located on the 3rd
floor of the Calhoun County
Courthouse has been
rescinded by Clerk of Court
Ruth Attaway. Mrs. Attaway
stated that due to space in
the Courthouse being "In
short supply," that the office
was given to *use of the
Calhoun County School
Board to store files.
Attaway stated that she
did not know who to contact
about the office (I personally
1lad left three messages by
:phone to her, and even went
by her office in person once)
so she called the only person
"she knew, a local business
-owner who'often calls him-
:self a "Creek Chief." Attaway
stated that this person "said
ihe wasn't interested in the
-office anymore, so I assumed
it was abandoned."
After this "Indian leader"
"and a "Creek" group from

statebound Friday


BY COACH GREG JORDAN
SThe Blountstown Tiger
weightlifting team has six
lifters who have qualified for,
the state meet set forFriday,
April 21, :at Sante Fe
Community College' ini
Gainesville. They include:
Justin Godwin, 129 class,
qualified with a 215 bench.
200 clean & jerk for a 415
total. We think he's capable
of possibly a 425 or 430. The
highest total in that weight
class is a 450 and the lowest
is a 355. Right now he's tenth
in the state in his weight
class.
Britt Wood. 139 class,


qualified with a 260 bench,
210 clean & jerk for a 470
total, 'tied for third in the
state in his class. \Ve think
he's capable of probably a
490. That would put him in
the top three.
Arsenio Ivory, 183 class.
qualified with a 405 bench.
350 clean & jerk for a 755
total. He has 'the second
\highest total in the state of
any weight class. The next
guy closest to.him 'is a 590.
He's an extremely talented
young man physically and.
hopefully. he will win his
third championship.
Josh Lee. 199 class, qual-
ified with a 325 bench and


310 clean & jerk, for a 635
total. Josh is capable of a
650. The highest turned in in
that class is a 670 so he's in.
third place right now.
Ryan Baker in 199 class,
qualified with a 290 bench,
265 clean & jerk for a '555
total. He's capable of a 575 or
585 on his best day. We're
trying to get him in the top
seven or eight.
Zack Smith. heavyweight
class, qualified with a 380
bench.,245 clean & jerk for a
625 total. We're shooting for
640 or 650 out of Zack. Right

Seven Altha lifters




are headed to state


BY COACH ROBBIE SMITH
Seven Altha lifters have
qualified for the state final set
for this Friday. The boys
have been training hard try-
ing to fine tune their tech-
nique and gain a few more
pounds of strength before
Friday's final.
Qualifying for state this
year are: 119-John Alday,
129-Gary Chew, 139-Dennis
Goodman, 154-Michael Mills,
154-Corey Mcalpin, 183-
Chris McCroan, and 238-
Nick Hansford.
Junior John Alday is cur-
rently tied for the top spot in
the state in the 119 weight
class. This is quite an accom-
plishment when you consider
he didn't even qualify for last
year's state final. He has
turned a 335 pound total
from a year ago into a 415
total this year all without
moving up in weight. Alday
has a shot of bringing home


the school's second individ-
ual state title.
Sophomore Gary Chew
qualified in the 129 weight
class. Gary is also a stand-
out for the Altha baseball
team. Gary finished second
in Section 2 with a 405 total.
Dennis Goodman
medaled two years ago as a
freshman and now looks to
add another medal in the 139
weight class. Goodman is
within 10 pounds of third
place and is capable of mak-
ing bigger lifts on Friday.
Corey McAlpin also quali-
fied in the 154 pound weight
class. Corey's determined
work ethic and dedication
have earned him a spot in
this year's final.
Michael Mills, owner of
six school records, will be
making his first trip to the
state final in the 154 weight
class. Mills owns all AHS
records in the 154 and 169
weight classes.


Seniors Chris McCroan
and Nick "Suave"' Hansford
will also represent Altha in
the finals. McCroan came out
of nowhere this year to claim
all records in the 183 weight
class. McCroan's 295 bench
press and 255 clean and jerk
earned him a 3rd place finish
in Section 2.
Nick Hansford will cap an
outstanding career at Altha
making his first trip to the
state final. Hansford owns
three school records and is
the only person in school his-
tory to clean and jerk more
than 300 pounds. Hansford's
350 pound bench press is the
second best in school history.
The state final will be held
at Santa Fe Community
College in Gainesville on
Friday, April 21. The 119-169
weight classes will lift in the
morning, while the 183-
Heavyweight classes will lift
in the afternoon.. The morn-
ing session begins at 10 CST.

BHS theatre to present twisted version offairytale




'Once Upon a Mattress' May 5-6


A hilariously twisted take
on the fairytale, 'The Princess
and the Pea" awaits audi-
ences at Blountstown High
School. "Once Upon a
Mattress" is set in a small
kingdom ruled over by a talk-
ative queen and a mute king.
The show, runs Friday and
Saturday, May 5-6, in the
school auditorium.
Performances are -at 7:00
p.m. and tickets are $5 in
advance or $6 at the door.
SMatthew Barbee, who has
taken on the role of director
while Amanda McGhee, the
,former director, is on mater-
nity leave, reminds us,
"Almost everyone has heard
the Hans Christian Andersen'
story of The Princess and the:
Pea.'" It is set in a kingdom
where an eligible prince falls
in love with a young woman
claiming to be a princess, but
the queen will only let her
son marry the woman if she
,passes a test to prove that
she is indeed a princess.
Because all true princesses
are extraordinarily sensitive.
the queen secretly has a tiny
pea placed under twenty
mattresses. If the so-called
princess is sensitive enough
to feel the pea. she will have
passed the test and be
*allowed to marry the prince.
Barbee continues to tell us
that "this version of the story
isn't quite accurate. Our
"Once Upon a Mattress' takes
that classic tale and turns it
on its head. sure to entertain
audiences with its surprise
ending."
In this tweaking of the
fairn tale, the overbearing
and dramatic' Queen
Aggravain (Jessica Matcall)


has ruled that no one may
marry until her son, Prince
Dauntless the Drab (Adam
Richards) marries. However,
the queen has. managed to
sabotage every princess to
come along. When Sir Harry
and Lady Larken (Nic Myers
and Jessica Fields) learn that
they are going to be parents,
Harry goes off to the swamps
to, bring back another
princess. Starring as the
princess Winnifred, the
Woebegone, Diana Glaze
arrives at the kingdom look-
ing as though she has come
in from a storm. Loud and
brassy, Winnifred must win
the hearts of the prince and
the kingdom, while her
straightforward and often
crude manners horrify the
queen who immediately
begins to scheme against her.
Yet, with some help from the
King (Umair Farouqi), the,
Minstrel (T.J. A\cock). and
the Jester (Nick Stoltfus).
Winnifred isn't going to be
quite so easy to get rid of..
Comedian Carol. Burnett
starred as Princess Winifred
in the play when it opened on
Broadway in 1959. She later
took the role to television
during the 1970s and has
recently switched roles, star-
ring as the queen m Disney's
recently produced made for
television mo\ie, of the same
name.
Nick IMyers. a senior at
BHS, has been relishing his
role as Sir Harry. the chival-
rous knight assigned to find
the princess for the bachelor
prince. 'It's been a lot of fun
playing Harry. While he is a
noble character, he can be a
bit pompous. vain and chau-

CHIPOLA'S GREASE EARNS SUPERIOR RATING-Chipolo

vinistic." role as the queen is "one of
Metcalf, a junior, says her the most fun roles! I've ever


played. She is so over the
top-she tries to control
everybody and yells at every-
body. Everything to her is so
serious, especially keeping
her son away from the altar.
She will do whatever it takes
to keep her son single."
"Ultimately, the play illus-
trates how we, in a world of
such diversity, are more alike
than we would like to admit,"
says Barbee. "All it takes, is
an open mind, a sense of
humor and a ticket to see
Blountstown High School's
"Once upon a Mattress."
,Barbee and McGhee, both
alumni of the Blountstown
high school musical theatre
program themselves, assure
us that this year's play prom-
ises off-the-wall comedy and
delightful intrigue, entertain-
ing audience members of all
ages.
Every ticket bought enters


the ticket holder in a drawing
for a $100 gift certificate

mattress set from Badcock's

ing will be held at the end of
the last performance and you

Mossy Pond News


BY LINDA WILLIAMS
Mossy Pond VFD
We have had a great cou-
ple weeks in Mossy Pond! The
rummage sale went real good
and we met lots of new peo-
ple. We also had a wonderful'
time at the Easter egg hunt.
This is a very nice place to
live. Most people are polite,
kind and are willing to help
the VFD of Mossy Pond.
We of the' Mossy Pond VFD
and Auxiliary would like to
thank everyone who worked
hard either by giving of their
time or spending their
money. Since we are basical-
ly in the same condition of
having no money, it's hard to
get, hard to spend and even
harder to support something
we know we need. How then
can we be of service, when we
work most of the time, sleep,
when we can and spend pre-
cious time with our family?
Well,. maybe picking a few
days a month to help out. We
have meetings for the fire-
fighters every other
Thursday, the first and the
third, and training on the
Saturday after from 8 to 12.
Meetings for the auxiliary are
on the first Tuesday of the
month at 12:30 and a half


hour before the firefighters
meet on Thursday.
Out of all the people who
live in Mossy Pond why aren't
you volunteering? I had a vis-
itor who said, "I wouldn't do
that for anything," that is,
spending his ,time., The
answer was, "You would if it
was your house burning."
The beautiful people this
week are the ones who
donated so many nice things
for our rummage, also .the
firefighters who picked the
items up. The Mossy Pond
VFD has many good firefight-
ers, but there are three who
you will find at the station
working on trucks and other
items on a sometimes daily
basis. They are Rolf
Myrhammar, Gene Burt and
Bill Williams. These guys
work very hard for the com-
munity so if you see them say
thanks!
Mossy Pond would like to
congratulate grandparents
Annie and Bill Truax on the
birth of their grandson,
William Preston John Truax,
born March 29 at 1:15 p.m.
'He Weighed six pounds.
Remember fire danger is

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Three years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following
three things made car shopping a big
headache for me:
*Haggling for the best price
*Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag

It ain't easy being green
Employees at Blountstown's Harvey's location were cele-
brating last week after exceeding their goal in the Muscular
Dystrophy Association's shamrock campaign. Calhoun and
Liberty County customers donated so much to the project, the
store was named number one in the district. Harvey's Office
Manager Linda Pritt challenged employees in the drive with
the promise to dye her hair green if they reached their goal.
She stayed true to her word and spent all day Wednesday with
a lime green do. Pritt is pictured above with Tony Taylor,
Harvey's division manager, and Tonya Six, manager of the
Blountstown store.
